“I love you so much papa. Rest In Peace and I’m so glad you got to share all your adventures with me and were able to accomplish so much. I’m so proud of you. I will always love you, but I think it’s time for you to go on an adventure of your own,” Nathen wrote.
“You’ll always be with me. Love you more than you will ever know and I’m glad you can be at peace now. You always were the toughest and funniest and smartest person I’ve known. I’m glad you shared you’re love with me. I’ll never forget it or lose it ❤️😘,” he added.

It seems that all media are all mad about Willie Garson's role in the 'Sex and the City'. To me, he will always be remembered as Steve Cera; Ross Geller's neighbor.— AJ (@AJtweetet) September 22, 2021

I first met Willie Garson in the Gospel Tent at the New Orleans Jazz Fest in 2014. He was so sweet and friendly. He loved New Orleans and gospel music. I hate when good people leave so suddenly. May he rest in eternal peace. #WillieGarson pic.twitter.com/XKobY2QXaP— Dvynangel (@Dvynangel) September 22, 2021
